Perhaps not fifty students In the university have ever noticed them. Nevertheless .they are there and seem to have had a purpose in taking this elevated position. No doubt they were originally live birds who halted for a brief rest on tho cornice of the library, and became petrified in the unaccus tomed frigidity of Nebraska's changeable climate Now they remain immovable upon their aerial perches and rep resent the spirit of wlsdow Inherent in the University in general and the library in particular. As birds of the night they are patron deities of ye burners of the midnight oil who keep their lamps constantly burning before the shrine of knowledge. Each day In the library may be seen scores or diligent students hard at work cramming for the examinations so soon to be hero. Thoy do not realize that the rare old birds above are tolepathically Instilling knowledge into their weary craniums to assist them to sur mount the obstacles in their paths. Even the confirmed Bluffer should become Interested in these learned fowls, and long Tor owlish char acteristics, in order that he may pass the milestone of his college career which he reaches nt this time.
